Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador will talk by phone with his Russian colleague on Monday about the relationship between the two countries and the supply of vaccines, amid a spike in cases and deaths associated with COVID-19.
The call between the Mexican president and Vladimir Putin is scheduled for 0800 local time (1400 GMT), Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said on Sunday through his Twitter account.
“The future of the bilateral relationship will be addressed as well as the supply of Russian vaccines to Mexico,” he published.
On Tuesday, the Mexican government said that once the Russian Sputnik V vaccine is approved, they expect to administer 7.4 million doses until the end of March.
In December, Mexico became the first Latin American country to apply the coronavirus vaccine, with biological from the American pharmaceutical company Pfizer, the only one applied so far.
In its attempt to tackle the growing pandemic, which has caused nearly 150,000 deaths, the nation has signed several contracts with different firms for the procurement of vaccines, including Britain’s AstraZeneca.
Mexico is the third country in the world with the most deaths associated with COVID-19, and for the fourth day in a row it reported more than 20,000 infections on Saturday.
